Science, Technology, Engineering, and Mathematics, or STEM, are fields of study and careers where the men far out represent the women. GoldieBlox is here to level the playing field. By tapping into girls' strong verbal skills at an early age, this story + construction set bolsters confidence in spatial skills while giving young inventors the tools they need to build and create amazing things. GoldieBlox was created by a Stanford University engineer graduate who aims to inspire girls between the ages of 4 and 9 to discover their inner engineer!
